Some of the most effective ways to keep your teeth from staining are easy to do, inexpensive, and don’t take a lot of time. You don’t need to use expensive and toxic whitening kits or go to a dentist to get whiter teeth. A great way to prevent stains on your teeth and improve your oral health is to start oil pulling.
Using Organic Oil for Whiter Teeth
Oil pulling is an ancient practice that has been used to improve oral health and keep teeth healthy and strong for centuries. All you need is some organic coconut oil, sesame oil or olive oil. Be sure that the oil you use is organic and food grade. Put a tablespoon or two of the oil in your mouth and swish it for 10-20 minutes every day. Just swish the oil around in your mouth. Then spit it out and rinse your mouth out. The oil will improve the health of your gums and whiten your teeth while it prevents new stains from forming on your teeth.
Drinking From a Straw
Another way to protect your teeth from stains is to drink through a straw. This protects your teeth from debris and from stains. You don’t have to give up wine, cola, or coffee in order to keep your teeth white. Just use a straw when you are drinking liquids that could potentially stain your teeth. Straws are cheap and you can keep a few in your bag or pocket so that you always have one with you, or you can ask for a straw with your drink in a restaurant or café. Straws direct the liquid past your front teeth eliminating the possibility that the liquid will stain your visible front teeth. Dentists often recommend people who have undergone whitening treatments use straws to keep their teeth white.
